I'm not sure I agree with the word "forced".  No one is forced.  If it is the only way to be eligible for parole then it is an option.  The other option is to keep them locked up to keep the rest of us safer from predation.

Forced only in the sense that if they want to be eligible for parole they must take the drugs (in Alabama).  I have no problem with this.  Half the guys that I went to school with have wreaked their lives with sexual promiscuity, multiple kids, infidelity, or just a fortune spent chasing women.  Honestly, many men would lead happier, more productive lives if they had access to these drugs, not just sexual offenders. Having said that I believe that child predators should face life imprisonment which would make the issue moot.
